Murray needs script

10.15.2009

It's safe to say that I would follow Bill Murray into the fiery pits of hell.

So it doesn't bother me when I hear that Murray won't do GHOSTBUSTERS 3, without a good script of course. He's got a point. With a film as memorable as this one, it's got to be something spectacular. He also said that GHOSTBUSTERS 2 wasn't as good as the first. He's on target with that as well, even though it was still really enjoyable.

Actually, Murray goes as far to say that the third installment is part of someone's wishlist. This long overdue project just feels destined to stay a hopeful idea. There's so much back and forth but nothing ever has been concrete. Until there's some sort of script and it's worthy of doing, Murray isn't bothering to leave the house.

Extra Tidbit: Murray and I both know the GARFIELD movie wasn't so good but honestly, he was the best choice to voice the lasagna loving fat cat.

Murray's cameo in ZOMBIELAND seemed to be a hint of sorts of a GHOSTBUSTERS 3. Plus, I agree that he was the perfect choice to do the voice of Garfield in that the late Lorenzo Musac did the voice of both the animated TV Garfield as well as Venkman on the animated Ghostbusters TV series (before Dave Clouier ruined it when ABC picked it up in the late 80's).

i'd love a sequel, but he's right. with the wrong script, a third ghostbusters movie could do more harm than good to the previous films reputations.

Hold on a minute,

On the last article about Ghostbusters 3, I was the only one saying this wasn't such a good idea, and it racked up about 10 thumbs down. Now everyone seems to be agreeing with me now that Bill Murray himself says it.

I'm with everyone in the world

I hope this never happens purely b/c expectation will never meet reality when it comes to this film. People will always want too much from Ghostbusters and just b/c everyone in the cast except Murray is trying to re-vamp their career doesn't mean it's a solid idea.

"ideally" and "ghostbusters 3" shouldn't be used in the same paragraph.

When they made The Real Ghost Busters cartoon show Lorenzo Music played the voice of Murray's character Peter Venkman. Music also did the voice of Garfield in the original cartoons. Unfortunatley Music died in 2001 so Murray stepped in to take his place.

The story for the video game was fantastic. It brought everything back. Sucks they couldn't use that. Wasn't it originally written as the third installment?

Relaunch

Ideally we would have a passing of the torch through to a batch of new guys that could take over the Ghostbusters mantle. There are a bunch of good actors out there that could be new recruits. But if we can't get the original cast in then just relaunch it (without re-telling the origin story)...

And keep the CGI to a minimum using it only where necessary, and I'll be there.

Ghostbusters is just one of the best concepts in cinema ever!

Mother puss-bucket

This is what I've been waiting to hear amid all the speculation. That they need a friggin' script. Murray is the glue that sort of holds together the franchise, despite it being the brainchild of Aykroyd and Ramis. He's also the the voice of reason. And everything I've heard from him on this subject has been right on the money as far as what they need for a third installment.

Yup

I want a 3rd GB movie more than anything, and after all this talk and speculation, I would be devastated if it fell through. But Bill Murray is right, it's got to be a great script. They can't throw something together JUST to get the guys back in uniform. The video game was a good script, but really only for a video game. It's gotta be great. And I think it's good that Bill Murray keeps talking like this, because it will force the writers to really bring their A game. Here's hoping...

Do you have any regrets? ...Garfield...

They need him more than he needs this film so he has every right to be as particular as he likes.

Ditto. I have to admit, while Ghostbusters is one of my favorite flicks of all time, I'd rather they just leave it be instead of giving us another one just because we want it. It happened with Indiana Jones and the result was less than spectacular (for the record I didn't hate KOTCS, but it could have been so much better).

The big thing for me is what drc5145 said; it's not even being written by Aykroyd and Ramis, which makes me think they're not really into it either. I mean, they wrote

Finally...

Someone talking sense about Ghostbusters 3, and I'm so happy it's the main character. This film has to be as good as the first or they should not even consider making it.
Also I don't blame him for garfield 2, the amount they paid him for the little amount of work no one would have turned it down.

I'm with him on this one. I have a gut feeling the script in development right now won't live up to Murray's standards, considering they have the 2 guys who wrote YEAR ONE scripting GB3.
